Moebius: Empire Rising rises to release

moebius

Jane Jensen’s Kickstarted adventure Moebius: Empire Rising is out now, and available from a variety of digital distribution networks.

Moebius is a point-and-click adventure designed and written by Jane Jensen of Sierra (and especially Gabriel Knight) fame. It puts you in the oh-so-grumpy shoes of Malachi Rector, wealthy antiques expert, who finds himself contracted by a mysterious government agency to determine if the life of a young murder victim resembles the life of any particular historical figure. Then people start trying to kill him, because – naturally – there’s more going on than is first apparent.

If you fancy picking it up, it’s apparently now available on GOG and Steam for $29.99 or £18.79 respectively. That said, Steam is currently telling me that it will be available there in three hours time, so I’m going to guess that Europeans will have to wait a few hours if they want it there.

If you don’t mind waiting, I puzzled my way through the entire thing over the weekend so my thoughts on Moebius should be up either later today or tomorrow.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
